Smiles All Around
At Dental Devotion we tell all of our patients that preventing dental diseases and conditions starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet that is low in sugar and high in fiber. Prevention also includes regular dental exams (every 6 months or as often as prescribed by Dr.’s Movaghari and Urteaga), routine cleanings, and x-rays when needed. Tooth sealants and fluoride treatments are also great preventive measures that help protect the teeth and the natural, beautiful qualities of your smile.
If your family is in the Northern Virgina, Arlington, Alexandria, Mclean, Herndon and Reston, or Great Falls areas, you can Request an Appointment with Dental Devotion today!
Dental Exams & Cleanings
What to Expect
As part of a comprehensive dental exam at Dental Devotion of Arlington, VA, you can expect Dr.’s Movaghari and Urteaga and your hygienist to provide the following services:
An examination of any diagnostic x-rays (as needed). This is essential for the early detection of tooth decay. X-rays also help Dr.’s Movaghari and Urteaga determine tooth and root positions, as well as identify tumors, cysts, and bone loss.
An oral cancer screening. Dr.’s Movaghari and Urteaga will check areas of your face, neck, lips, gums, tongue, throat, and surrounding tissues for any signs of oral cancer. Personal preventative measures include smoking avoidance, limiting alcohol use, and practicing good oral hygiene.
A gum disease evaluation, where the gums and bone around your teeth are examined for any signs of periodontal disease.
An examination for tooth decay, where special instruments are used to check tooth surfaces for signs of decay.
And an examination of any existing fillings, crowns, and tooth restorations.
Your dental cleanings are performed by our hygienists, and will include the removal of calculus (plaque and tartar build-up) above and below the gum line. The hygienist will also perform a polishing to remove stains and plaque on the teeth.
